    OR...

    Cut 1/2 to 3/4 of a coil out of each spring and get drop spindles

    Take out the second biggest leaf and get 2" drop blocks.

    Key word Best :) cutting coils is bad and removing leafs creates a very bouncy ride and prones the supporting leaf to breaking.

    I got a 93 4 door 2" spindle 2" spring 3" leafs want to add 2 inch blocks, when I hit a pot hole depper than 1.5" at 55mph I hear my front tire hit my inner fender. The back will need to have the bumpstop cut off and possibly be notched in order for me to add the blocks. I already bottom out a lot. Hoping to cut that soon for more clearance.

    ok, so let me ask this.......can I put a 4/4 or 4/5 drop on a 89 blaze with stock front tires and maybe 265 or 275 rear tires without having to notch the frame?
    Who else could find a truck with no door handles, a 5" cowl hood, shaved tails and a ZR1 rollpan for $800? :evil:

    KEY to best dropping 4/5 is getting Belltech 2" Drop Spindles,2" Drop Coils, 2" Drop Leafs with 3" Drop Blocks.. Dont do it half-Ass shit and cut coils and pull leafs out.. It'll work..But.. The ride of it will suck and be rough as hell.. And if you do it right and get what i listed.. it'll ride just about the same if not better the stock..
